justify shooting an unarmed person as self-defense. since your state became the first to adopt stand your ground in 2005, the number of what's termed as justifiable homicides tripled from 12 to 35 per year, between 2005 and 2010. that's an increase of 283%. are you hearing us yet, governor?! what are those people outside your office, what they're trying to get you to hear is that it's going to take a lot more than last year's quickly assembled task force to show them that you take their concerns around this law seriously. they want real action, that shows you understand this law is unacceptable and should not be used to justify the death of an unarmed teenager. the problem does not begin with the tragedy that happened to trayvon martin. the problem does not even begin with the actions of george zimmerman. governor, the problem begins and remains with the stand your ground law. sincerely, melissa.

the secularists. now, the military as well as other state institutions has been on the defensive. this new alignment may not be any more stable or lasting. it is also important to say the current alliance with the secular opposition is anti- brotherhood. it is not anti-islamist. the party supported the removal of morsi and has exerted its influence in the new transition by vetoing the cabinet choices. my second point is that we should really reserve judgment. on the patht egypt towards democracy or not. on the positive side of the ledger, the military is not exerting control directly but has put civilians out front. they put in place a cabinet. addition to that, i would say another positive sign is that the new transition roadmap puts the rewriting of the constitution before the holding of new parliamentary and presidential elections and this a flaw in the first transition. the fact that they held this before the first time. they are dominating the process and is quitting others. on the negative side of the ledger, the way in which the democratic process was set aside on july 3 is troublin

to work their way into the middle class. the best defense against all of these forces, global competition, economic polarizati polarization, is the strength of the community. we need a new push to rebuild run-down neighborhoods. we need new partnerships with some of the hardest-hit towns in america to get them back on their feet. and because no one who works full time in america should have to live in poverty, i'm going to keep making the case that we need to raise the minimum wage because it's lower right now than it was when ronald reagan took office. it's time for the minimum wage to go up. [ applause ] we're not a people who allow chance of birth to decide life's biggest winners or losers. after years in which we've seen how easy it can be for any of us to fall on hard times, folks in gaelsburg, folks in the quad cities, you know they're good people who work hard. sometimes they get a bad break. plant leaves, somebody gets sick, somebody loses a home. we've seen it in our family and friends and neighbors. we've seen it happen. that means we cannot turn our back when bad breaks hit any
